Their selection of air filters have the 5-Star Energy Cost Index (ECI) rating placing the company in the top 20% of customers worldwide that have chosen to make a difference in energy usage globally.

Founded in 1965 and with a student population of approximately 3900 full time and part time students, Sault College offers opportunities for students in postsecondary, apprenticeship, adult retraining, continuing education and contract training program categories.

Is anyone familiar with the original 'press release'?

One hundred years later and now more than ever our press spews out propaganda and advertising and calls it news.

Receiving an award from a supplier you purchase products from? This doesn't make much sense to me. That would be like me getting an 5-Star award from Budweiser for consuming their beer in a responsible manner.
